Users of the Adobe Creative Cloud suite may be familiar with Adobe Stock, Adobe’s royalty-free image service. Today the company is looking to expand the number of stock assets available by announcing the Adobe Stock Contributor Site. The new program is in public beta, and allows anyone to upload photos, illustrations, videos, and vectors for other creative individuals to preview and purchase for their projects.
To support this engaged and passionate creative community, we are delighted to offer the premier destination to buy, but now also to sell high-quality, royalty-free content.
In addition to the new service, Adobe has added auto-keywording and Creative Cloud integration which will make submitting content to Adobe Stock even easier.
By integrating Adobe Stock contributor submission directly from Creative Cloud applications like Lightroom CC and Bridge CC, Adobe hopes to make it easy for users to contribute their creations to the new service. While Lightroom CC and Bridge CC are the only two currently being supported in the public beta, the company hopes to add more CC applications and feature more content types soon.
In addition to being able to submit your contributions directly from Creative Cloud applications, auto-keywording will run your image through a machine learning algorithm for analysis, and will generate keywords for your image, displaying the top 5 which you can then reorder, review, or modify. Again, the company hopes this will save time for users who choose to upload their content to the Adobe Stock Contributor Site service, and over time the algorithm should get better and more accurate as more people use it.
Are you excited to be able to contribute your photography and other work to Adobe Stock Contributor and hopefully sell it to other creative people for use in their projects? Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.
